  Oh god, an unbreak-my-app option? Havoc Pennington has a nice

 Personally I would like to see to oposite of what Karl is proposing:
 a flag to restore .subversion. IMO, if .subversion is present, don't
 muck with it unless the flag is present.

Notice that I *wasn't* proposing it, I was describing it for the sole
purpose of saying that it wasn't worth doing. Thought my paragraph
(quoted above) made that pretty clear... Oh well. :-)

Anyway, would rather see a separate tool (a script?) to create a
~/.subversion area, than have it be part of Subversion's interface.
That is, either svn create's ~/.subversion automagically, as it does
currently, or else it does nothing, and we have a separate tool
('svn-cfg-init' or whatever) to do it.
